Donate Stuff

We gladly accept your gently-used donations at our Ashland, Central Point, Grants Pass, Klamath Falls, Medford-Southgate, Roseburg, and White City locations.  We also have a donation site at 2077 Lars Way in west Medford.

Donation lanes at stores will typically follow store hours: 10 AM to 7 PM daily.

The Lars Way donation center will be open daily from 9 AM to 4:30 PM.  This location is ideal for larger loads (trucks, trailers, etc.).

During times of extreme weather (i.e. heat) or poor air quality (during fire season) donation lanes may be closed.  Please check our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

Donation procedures will follow OSHA-recommended guidelines for increased safety:

  • Donors are asked to box or bag loose items before coming to Goodwill donation sites.
  • Donors must stay in cars until Goodwill staff directs them to the donation area.
  • Donations will be unloaded and placed into designated bins.
  • Donation receipts are now paperless! Follow our easy online process to get receipts emailed directly to your inbox.

Download a Paperless Receipt

Our donation receipts are now paperless only. This is your chance to record what you gave us and keep that record for tax purposes. Please check with your tax professional about your donations to Goodwill and the value of those contributions. If you itemize deductions on your federal tax return, you are entitled to claim a charitable deduction for your Goodwill donations. Read about IRS Guidelines.

Get a Tax Break

Because Goodwill is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your donation is a gift that helps others and can give you a tax break.

Donation Guidelines

When you donate, you support our Mission and your community. We welcome gently used clothing, shoes, furniture, household items, and even vehicles. We also welcome financial donations.

Donating Tips

For your safety, please remain in your car until a donation attendant can assist you.

IRS acceptable receipts can now be emailed using our new paperless receipt option.

IRS Guidelines

Federal law permits Goodwill® donors to claim tax deductions for many financial contributions and for donated clothing and household items in good, used condition or better.

If you’re unsure whether your item qualifies for a tax deduction, then consider this: if you would give it to a relative or friend, then the item is most likely in good condition and is appropriate to donate.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires donors to value their items when filing their tax returns. To help guide you, we have compiled commonly donated items. Our valuation guide assumes the donated items are in good condition. Please note that these are estimated values.

At Goodwill Industries, we want people to give as much thought to where they donate their clothes as they would to where they donate their money. Donors should give to charities they know and trust and that will make the most of their donations. Goodwill channels 84 percent of our revenues into job training programs that benefit hundreds of thousands of people each year.
